  • Fabulous Intimate Wedding Location

    "We held our daughter's wedding at Toogoodoo Bluff at the end of September 2014. We had a fabulous time. She wanted a wedding with low country feel but not necessarily a "huge" plantation. She also wanted to be able to spend the entire weekend at her venue with the wedding party relaxing, spending the time with friends and family and making memories to last a lifetime. She wanted a place steeped in history, beauty and serenity. We found everything we desired when we found Toogoodoo Bluff. The wedding of her dreams took place and we can't say enough about how beautiful and serene everything was. God truly blessed us with a beautiful day. I am so thankful to Keith, the owner, and for finding such an exquisite place for my daughter to fulfill the wedding of her dreams. I hope to come back some day and have a family reunion here. Thanks again Keith and Toogoodoo Bluff. Amber F."

  • Perfect in every way

    "My wife and I stayed for the entire month of February 2015. The house was very clean and fully stocked with all living essentials, including lots of towels,sheets,pillow cases,blankets, all sorts of pots and pans, silverware etc etc. The beds were incredibly comfortable, all the furniture in all rooms very well maintained, all TV's internet, kitchen and laundry appliances worked well. Really, we felt as if we were at home for all intents and purposes. The location was outstanding, near shopping,dining, within easy walk to Pitt St Pier and it's fabulous sunsets, and a very short drive to all beaches as well as downtown Charleston. Kathy our owner could not have been more friendly and helpful. Again and again she helped us feel at home and was most attentive to some very minor repair that really could have waited until we left. She personally introduced us to local bargain stores, car mechanics and bike rentals (in fact she used her van to transport the bikes for us). By the end of the month she became a friend rather than landlady. This house owner and location made for a fabulous experience, without a single complaint...other than we wished to stay longer."

  • Perfect Location

    "We had never stayed in this condo before, but we were so impressed with the location! You're only a one-minute walk from the Starbucks on King Street, and in perfect location for a quick stroll to the Market or East Bay Street. The parking is very convenient, and we had no trouble figuring out access to our room (which was very important for our guests). The unit itself is spacious and clean! Amenities are great, and ideal for a brief stay in the city. The second bedroom is only semi-private, but it's quiet and hidden for guests. The two bathrooms are really a plus in the space! We would really recommend this location."

  • It's all they wrote!

    "I can echo the glowing reviews that got me interested in this property. We had no car during our stay and didn't miss it because we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. It was total immersion in the best of historic Charleston, starting with the condo itself. The luxury of having a spacious living room to relax and regroup in was integral to the authentic experience. The owner, Robert, was gracious and attentive to making it a good experience for us. We would love to return!"
